About this pro

Welcome! I’m glad you found your way here.

People seek therapy for many different reasons and everyone has different goals in mind. Some come to me for help when they find themselves feeling sad, or lonely, or when they find themselves feeling stressed and worried. Some because they need a safe place to work through thoughts and feelings that seem to keep them from living the life they hope for. Others for help in building more satisfying relationships. 

I love helping people find the life they long for! I enjoy finding collaborative was of creating sustainable change and freedom from past hurts and difficulties.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I have an initial consultation to see if we are a good fit. If we are then we discuss the fee and make a plan for moving forward.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, a PhD (ABD) in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and have completed a residency in analytic therapy and trauma.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I have a set fee that all patients agree to. While I don’t accept insurance I do provide all the necessary information to apply for out of network coverage. If you have an HSA you can use those funds to pay for treatment. Most of my patients receive some kind of reimbursement from their insurance.


How did you get started in this business?

I got started in private practice because I did a private practice internship and Residency so I have extensive experience in working this way. Working privately means I have the greatest freedom to customize treatment to each unique person.


What types of customers have you worked with?

While I have a wide range of experience I specialize in working with depression/anxiety, trauma and PTSD, dissociative disorders and psychosis. I also specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ community and those in nonmonagamous relationships.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recent gave a seminar on gender and power in psychoanalysis. It was a great experience! I learned so much and we had such a great learning experience. It reminded me of why I love training other therapists; we all leave with a stronger skills set and greater compassion.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I believe that finding a good fit is the most important thing in seeking out professional help. If the fit is good you can work through anything. As an aalytic therapist I am constantly in training, always striving to become the best I can be. I think this is important for a therapist to do. So ask about their training!


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

 I really appreciate how hard it can be to start treatment so when a patient first starts I expect it to feel weird. So I think if you show up and simply start with whatever is on your mind that’s the best thing you can do. It’s the therapist’s job to help you ask questions and think.
